Worldwide acclaim for new Bendigo Hospital design

The new $630 million state-of-the-art Bendigo Hospital has won an international award for excellence in design.

Stage One of the landmark project won the Best of Asia Pacific Design Award from the International Interior Design Association in the healthcare category. It is the only Australian building to win an award in the competition.

The top international honour recognises inspiring design and acute architectural understanding of the way people live and work in a local context.

“It is a shining example of innovative, world-class hospital design where patient needs are front and centre,” says Minister for Health Jill Hennessy.

It is also home to the largest hospital green roof in Australia and features a 770 solar panel array which has recently been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2017 Premier’s Sustainability Awards.

The hospital was designed by health planners Silver Thomas Hanley in collaboration with architectural firm Bates Smart, the Victorian Government and health partners Bendigo Health and Exemplar Health.

Artist impressions of Stage Two released recently reveal a new linking bridge, helipad and multi-level car park, scheduled for completion in mid-2018.
